Although you may change your will whenever you wish, there are three basic reasons to consider revising it:
Life events that may trigger the need to update your will, trust, living will, powers of attorney, or other estate- or end-of-life planning documents include:
For example, if the person you designated for your power of attorney dies or if you decide to choose someone else, you’ll want to update that document.
You may need to change your living will if you move to another state, where legal provisions may differ from those in the state from which you moved.
Check and update your military service records when activated or annually (if you’re in the career service) and make sure your summary of benefits is accurate.
Every 10 years, update your passport.
